Can I delete the Secure Access software?

Hi,

 

I just bought a bunch of the 16GM Ultra flash drives to offload all the pictures that are all over my hard drive.  I don't need to password protect my photos, just need the max space to store them.  Can I get rid of the software that came on each flash drive without rendering them useless?  This is my first exp. using a flash drive.  Thanks, in advance for your help.

You can, and you may.  Smiley Wink   Just delete the files and folders no need to format the drives.

where are the files on the local drive?  I searched the drive for secureaccess and all that came up was a prefetch file. I have this icon in the middle of my screen and can't get rid of it.

the files are not on your local drive. they are on the removable disk for the flash drive only.

Sounds like someone didn't safely remove the USB drive.  Does the icon go away after a reboot?
